Filled with light and charity?

We read the following in D&C 88:67:

And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things.

Mormon tells us the following:

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love [that is, charity], which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ.

Now, when I fill a glass of water, I cannot fill it with milk until it is empty again. So how can we be filled with charity when our bodies are filled with light?

  1. What if they’re filled on different planes? Like the spiritual and the emotional? It’s as good an answer as any, right? :)

    Though, maybe the answer is found in the D&C scripture itself. The 1828’s Websters has the primary definition of comprehend as “to contain, to include”. So, if you’re filled with light, you’re then capable of containing everything.

  2. You don’t need to resort to ‘different planes’ – I can fill your body with x-rays at the same time as I fill it with warmth…if I swap those x-rays for mixrowaves I can do both simultaneously. :P

    Matter is mostly empty space anyway.

  3. …and If I could type I would have used the word ‘microwaves’ rather than ‘mixrowaves’.
